Why did x86 surpass MIPS?
Because when it came to powerful processors, the only ones available were PPC and x86.
Microsoft chose to support x86, so naturally x86 became the dominant desktop platform in that regard.
Apple chose PPC at first, but when it became clear that IBM was not going to improve the energy efficiency, they switched to x86 to improve their laptops.
With both Microsoft and Apple allowing this piss poor architecture to dominate all their computer platforms, we finally had the x86 dominance.
